What's in a name?

Now that we know we are having a GIRL (and we are VERY excited) the first thing out of everybody's mouth is...."What are you naming her?" My response is..."How should I know?"
A name is sooooo important and I feel like it is one of the hardest things to do...I mean, this little girl will have her name forever and she has to like's really hard to decide these things. With Jenner...the kids started calling her Jenner before we knew she was a girl and just like that...a name was born...Chris picked Taylor's name...I picked Rhett's (my parents almost named my older brother Rhett and I have always liked it)...and I picked Grady's name when I was about 6 months pregnant...only to have Chris say "That is the stupidest name I have ever heard"...and then proceeded to pick it out of a book on our last day in the hospital! MEN?!?
A few names that we have liked in the past are...Millie (after my grandma), Avery, Afton and I really can't think of anymore...
My question to you is...What would name MY baby?

I like Avery...Millie is a little old for me and I like old names...Afton??? Not sure about that one but it's your bebe!!! Whatever you choose, it will be perfect.

I wanted to name my daughter Avery, but my hubby said no. I still love love love that name. I like the middle name to be a family name, so maybe you could use Millie for a mn. Avery Millie Barton. I think it's cute!

Avery is cute. I also like the name Hazel. (Even though it's kind of out of the ordinary.)

Love, Haley
